A Novel Trip to Pirit.
Last Saturday quite a sensation was creat
ed hy the appearance on our streets ol a very
strange looking eralt. No one knew what it
was and many were the conjectures made
thereon. Some thought that another Noah,
In the fastness of some wilderness, had con
structed an ark. Others thought it was the
leading float in .some carnival parade, but on
closer Inspection it woe the hull ol a boat that
F. I.. Jewett, of Laclede, had constructed pre
paratory to a trip to the gulf. The lxint is to
lie launched in Grand river at a point near
Sutnucr. There it will lie provided witli all
and modem equipments. Mr. Jewett and a
crew will sail, as soon as Grand river rises,
down to the Missouri, thence to the Mississip
pi, thence to the Gulf, where they will engage
passage to Paris lo attend the Worhr's Fair.
Tills will be a novel yet, we picsume, a pleas

Deer in Carroll County.
S"ine dogs down southwest of town started
a deer one day last week. It was a flue look
ing J-ptotig buck, and he just cut the wind
with the dogs close at his beds. He ran
through a bunch of cattle on J.lt. Rea's farm
and attempted to clear a high wind break, but
it was a little too high for him and lie hung up
lor a while, hut Anally succeeded iu getting
over, making his escape. This same animal
was ngaiu seen ctossiug the railroad track lie
tween here ami Norborne two or three days
ago. He is no doubt onc.of the survivors of
the flock ol deer cared for so long, by the late
Roht. Stanley, and which for years he kept
in an enclosure. Carrolltou Democrat.
Thou regal llouer ol fair Japan,
I would the ocean I could span,
And iu the sight of Fuji's dome,
Heboid thee in thy native home!
No wonder that thy kindred race
Upon their flag thy petals trace,
And witli thy disk the treaties seal,
Official of the common weal.
Thou art no base, plebian weed,
Nor used for any common need;
A royal plant for kings to own,
An emblem of .' empire's throne!

THE HARRIS BRAND.
Oh angel's food, delectable!
Prompt .at its Queen's command,
The marvel rises light as down
The peerless Harris brand.
Old A'jram fed no angel,
In Canaan's balmy laud,
On bill of fare so velvety
As this rare Harris brand
Where is the little woman
More daintily plan'd
Th'ii she who smiles the daintiness
Into the Harris brand?
A touch itself angelic,
A deft and mystic hand.
That stirs the dawn and snowdrifts
All through the Harris brand.
If you would shout divinely
Hail Columbia happy laud,
Just titillate the vocables
With slice of Harris brand!
Then feast; and Mister Kiulcv
Can never so expand;
We're, one and all expansionists
When fed on Harris brand.
If you have overdone It,
And slonnclics arc uumau'd,
The Doctor's pills and fiddle jii;s
Relieve the Harris brand.
Though light as cider feather,
Your preacher plump and bland
Fires olt his biggest sermons
When full of Harrh brand.
When guests have burst asunder
On provender so ('rand;
The Doctor sews them up again
For still more Harris brand.
Miss M y flirts with Cupid
And keeps the uppcrhaud.
While thus she charms the beans in swarms
With chunks of Harris brand.
And here we sigh and hanker
On Ouachita's bright strand
For angel's and nrchangcl'sTfood
Celestial Harris brand.
As white as lily petals
Hy fairy pinions fan'd,
As exquisite as baby checks
The standard Harris brand,
I want to be an angel
And with the angels stand
Whenever little Madam
Ilrings out the Harris brand.
Some day our gracious lady
Will join the seraph band
And sampling angel's food on high,
Compare the Harris brand!
